In Baten Kaitos, the "player" is a spirit that the characters talk to and ask for help, etc.
In the original Japanese releases you could specify to have yourself referred to as male or female, but lolcowlizers were too lazy to translate additional lines and simply cut that feature from the western releases. Doesn't help that when they originally released the games were slammed in the west by game jurnos for simply being JRPGs too.

Yep. The remaster's English translation not only fails to restore the choice in Origins, it cuts it from the English release of the original. The trannies are just that butthurt over male and female existing.

I had a look at the source and it doesn't touch duckstation functionality at all, only the game memory in the emulated console RAM via shared memory APIs (CreateFileMapping/OpenFileMapping). Basically it's a game mod in the same vein as a PC game MP mod rather than emulator netplay. Having to run duckstation in wine is gay but it should work fine as the relevant APIs are implemented in wineserver.

>Capcom dusting off their old PC ports
I wonder if any of the other PC ports of Capcom games from this era will be re-released. Besides the MegaMan X games and Street Fighter ports (already in a compilation re-release on PC), there's Resident Evil 2/3, Dino Crisis and sequel, Mega Man Legends and sequel (likely not this one given the Capcom data breach essentially confirmed a Legends legacy collection since there was a version of the Tron source code that was getting active modifications), and Breath of FIre IV (a curious one because Capcom recently asked what games people wanted to see remade and they gave the option of BoF1-3, rather than BoF1-4), They also published Electronic Popple, a PC only beat-em-up set inside a computer.
>>250369
>all the original content - 1996
>comparing it to PS1 version so its not just talking about the original release

That indicates this is based on the NEC port of the game. That's  'weird' . Resident Evil got four different PC ports (NEC, internal Capcom, Virgin, and MediaKite), all apparently forked off the original code independently. I wonder if Capcom (or someone going through old files from VideoLogic, the European distributor for the port) found the source code to that release.

>Kang flew from Newark, New Jersey, to Jacksonville, Florida, last Thursday after telling his mother that he was going to visit a friend that he had met while playing a video game
>The victim was walking out of his bedroom when he was confronted by Kang, who hit him on the head with the hammer, officials said. The two struggled as the victim called for help. His stepfather responded and helped to restrain Kang until police arrived.
>Once in custody, Kang told investigators that the victim is a “bad person online,” officials said. He also asked deputies how much jail time people got for breaking and entering and assault.

>On the 27th, a Russian hacker criminal group announced a crime on a dark site on the highly anonymous "dark web" due to a cyber attack on the publishing giant KADOKAWA and the video distribution site "Nico Nico Douga" and other sites could not be used.
>The hacker group called itself a "black suit" and claimed to have stolen a large amount of data such as personal information of users and employees, although the authenticity is unknown. If they don't pay the money, they will release it on July 1. KADOKAWA commented, "At this time, we have nothing to answer."
>The Black Suit is said to be one of the leading criminal gangs that use ransom-demanding computer viruses called "ransomware". According to the statement of the attack, they broke into Kadokawa's information system about a month ago, stole about 1.5 terabytes of data, and encrypted it. He made a deal with KADOKAWA's management, but was dissatisfied with the amount offered and threatened to increase the amount.
>According to KADOKAWA and its subsidiary Dwango, there was an outage that made it impossible to access multiple servers in the early morning of the 8th.

Oh and one more thing; why would a Russian move against the Japanese right after the latter denies US credit cards?

Because those credit institutions can be used to control how and what people are allowed to spend money on, and Russia is one of the countries helping push for Agenda 2030, with one of the goals of said agenda being the control of how and what people spend money on.

Why does that matter? I never said nor implied the hack had anything to do with stealing credit card information.

‘Halo’ Composer Marty O’Donnell Details That Microsoft Began Pushing Woke Changes In ‘Halo 2’ Out Of Fear Of Being Labeled Islamophobic
https://archive.md/MCa9v
>Marty O’Donnell, the composer for numerous Halo games including Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3:ODST, and Halo: Reach recently detailed that Microsoft executives began meddling with the franchise and pushing woke changes with Halo 2 out of fear of being labeled Islamophobic.
>Speaking with Andrew Chapados on his Andrew Says YouTube channel, O’Donnell first explained that executives embrace woke ideology and the DEI agenda out of fear.
>He detailed, “I can’t say for certain what’s in everybody’s mind, but when I was there, when I was on the Board of Directors let’s say at Bungie, when I talked to the higher ups at Microsoft, there >is a lot of fear. And a lot of fear started creeping in.”
“There is fear that you are going to essentially get on the wrong side of some special interest groups who can be very loud and very annoying so lets placate those people,” he elaborated. “So I would say fear is probably one of the biggest things.”
>He continued, “I don’t think, in my experience, that these are deeply held beliefs. You have to understand that especially in the big companies, the C-suite and the executives, all they are doing is looking at the bottom line. And if they think something could affect the bottom line-. I honestly think a lot of these people are empty suits. They don’t actually have core values. So they adopt the core values of the moment to make sure they are on the ‘right’ side so they don’t get any sort of backlash.”
>“And that’s an indictment of people who end up running companies,” he went on. “I understand that, but I’ve rarely found people with strong moral character running the companies. They tend to just be- they go the way the wind blows. It’s going to take them a little while to realize this is actually not helping their bottom line. There might be a few true believers out there, but it’s few and far between, in my opinion.”
>“Almost nobody who ends up being at the top level of these entertainment companies actually ever made any entertainment. They aren’t actual directors. They’re not artists. They’re not musicians. They’re not writers. They haven’t created anything. They might’ve come from marketing, or have an MBA, or worked their way up through the production side of things where they’re not really making things, they’re just overseeing the production side. And so for some reason I don’t trust their judgment. They just don’t have good judgment when it comes to this. And they have a lot of fear. So I would say fear is the big driving factor here.”
>When asked to provide an example, O’Donnell pointed to Halo 2, “I started seeing it a little bit even during our Halo 2, which goes back quite a ways. We were making Halo 2 in 2002, 2003, which was close enough after 9/11. If you know the story of Halo it’s about this group of religious zealots that essentially will commit suicide to keep their religion going. That’s the characters we had for the Covenant.”
>He then shared, “That started making Microsoft a little bit nervous because they felt like there could be some backlash from the Muslim community in the Middle East that maybe this could be seen as Islamophobic. All of a sudden we were being asked to be very careful about some names of people or references or phrases and things like that.”
>O’Donnell then detailed how he initially reacted to this, “I started seeing that and I thought, ‘Well, that’s not necessarily unreasonable because we weren’t trying to do some sort of allegory about the political situation in the world that had to do with jihadists and all the rest of it.”
>Next, he shared, “Maybe you know this story, but one of our main characters, the Arbiter was not the Arbiter during the whole time we were making Halo 2. The character’s name was the Dervish. And we had recorded all the voice. I had directed all the actors and everybody was using the term Dervish. And then we found out that like this could be seen as an insult because there is an Islamic figure known as dervishes. So we had to change it. We were forced to change that name to a different name. So we came up with the Arbiter.”
“I was never happy about it,” he continued. “I thought this is an artistic choice. This is what we had from the beginning. We were not making any sort of political or religious comment. We had tons of religious imagery: the ark, halo, the Covenant. All of these things are sort of imbued with religious terminology. So I didn’t see why the Dervish was a problem, but we were forced to change that.
>“I could see that the bigger the producer the more fingers would be in the pie trying to mess with things,” he concluded.
>O’Donnell would later detail that video game companies and their parent companies will never pushback against making white men villains. He detailed, “If your plot line deals with an evil white person or an evil corporation, you’re fine. Evil white guys, especially men, and evil corporations no problem. You will never get pushback on that. And that’s been around forever.”
>He added, “And you can also be, ‘Yeah, let’s make the Christians hypocrites and bad people.’ That’s easy. You’re never going to get pushback on that.”

I suppose its my fault for not knowing that due to more being into 80's sci-fi manga and anime rather than classic sci-fi /lit/ works. Though I will admit, the first thing that comes to my head when I think of "western made cyberpunk" is that geisha from Blade Runner.

American Company Blackstone Inc. To Acquire Japan’s Largest E-Manga Site In USD 1.7 Billion Deal
https://archive.ph/dHNgO

>Blackstone Inc., the world’s largest alternative asset manager, is set to acquire Infocom, Japan’s largest e-manga platform, in a deal valued at $1.7 billion.
>This marks Blackstone’s biggest private equity transaction in Japan to date.
>Blackstone will purchase a majority stake in Infocom from Teijin and launch a tender offer for the remaining shares at ¥6,060 each. The deal values Infocom’s equity at about ¥275 billion ($1.7 billion).
>The deal will give Blackstone access to Japan’s booming digital manga market, estimated to be worth $3 billion.
>Infocom’s main revenue source is Mecha Comic, a popular website and app offering serialized manga for a small fee per chapter.
>Mecha Comic platform is a leading destination for digital manga in Japan, boasting a vast library of titles catering primarily to female readers in their 30s and 40s. It contains both popular titles as well as original ones. However, it is their romance manga, that has garnered much attention.
>According to Bloomberg, Blackstone’s move is a shrewd investment, recognizing the untapped potential of Japan’s “soft power empire.”
>They highlighted the growing global influence of Japanese manga and anime and suggest that Blackstone is ahead of the curve in capitalizing on this cultural phenomenon.
>Blackstone plans to expand Infocom’s original content, focusing on genres popular with its primarily female readership, a demographic with growing disposable income.
>Atsuhiko Sakamoto, Blackstone’s head of private equity in Japan, sees potential in developing animation and merchandise based on popular titles.
>He noted that while Infocom has a small English-language business in North America, Blackstone would prioritize building up original content creation in Japan before expanding overseas.
>“The more original content we have, we can monetize that intellectual property over time,” Sakamoto said in an interview. “We can create animation or merchandising around that, which is going to be the potential opportunity in the midterm.“
>Right now, original content brings in about 10% of revenue of the platform.
>The acquisition comes amid a surge in global interest in Japanese content, with streaming platforms vying for rights to popular manga stories for live-action or animated adaptations.
>Additionally, digital manga sales in Japan has grown too, reaching approximately ¥483 billion ($3.1 billion) in 2023, nearly doubling since 2019, while print manga sales have declined.
>Sony Music Entertainment was previously reported to be competing with Blackstone and KKR & Co. to acquire Infocom. The bidding process reportedly involved multiple rounds.
>Infocom’s shares closed at ¥6,030 in Tokyo trading, having more than doubled since early March when reports of the potential sale emerged.
>Blackstone envisions a five-year plan for Infocom, culminating in a public offering. However, Sakamoto acknowledged the possibility of other companies being interested in acquiring the business due to its strong content portfolio.
>“If we build a nice content business, I think it’s going to be very attractive to a lot of people,” he said.

Barely even news. Most of GTA 5's content lies within GTA Online, while singeplayer remains barebones. RDR2 hasn't received any story DLCs or additional content for singleplayer either, because ((( Rockstar ))) only provides new content to Red Dead Online. It's gonna happen to GTA 6 as well.

The first game (the original, not the HD remaster that fucked up every single graphical detail) is a dearly crafted love letter to the history of Batman comics and which truly embodies the feeling of being Batman, swooping into a crowd of bad guys, dispatching them with barely any effort, and swooping away to solve a mystery. It has a lot of trappings from the 7th gen era - having to hold a button to run, having heavy and slow animations, becoming significantly easier as it goes on since you accrue upgrades and gadgets against mostly static enemy types, stealth having too much leeway - but it's fun if you're willing to accept it as a AAA normalfag dudebro game. It is one of those games like Call of Duty 4 that is so good it ruins the industry for at least a decade following its release, which you can see in that every game had detective vision and one-button parries for a long time until Dark Souls became the "hardcore game for hardcore gamers" template.

The optional puzzles like Riddler trophies that require you to find very particular angles around the world and photograph things in particular alignments can be genuinely quite tough, and there was clearly a lot of love put into the game. It's worth a playthrough if you've never touched it, but I don't think any of the sequels really recaptured the magic since they had to keep introducing new mechanics and bloat.

Because the people in charge of the industry cannot actually develop games. Those in the industry who are capable of developing games suffer from the same mind virus as the people who cannot develop games. And the people outside of the industry who can develop games are releasing their shit on platforms OUTSIDE of Steam and modern consoles.

I've looked at it from the simple rule that there is zero reason to NOT develop games for every game console made in the past 20 years. And any excuse that does exist is the result of people no knowing how to code.
>Even shit like Tetris and Pac-Man got sequels.
They got sequels in the 1980's, the same decade both came out.

Sony Group to End Production of Blu-ray Discs
https://archive.ph/u8Sgq
Just for reference, while Sony is one of the "many" patent holders and licensors of Blu-Ray tech, who have the entire medium under lock and key: https://archive.md/RhXC9
They are also the SOLE manufacturer of Blu-Ray discs: https://archive.md/shQPB
>In a press release issued in September, replicator association Media-Tech noted that Sony’s disc-pressing subsidiary, Sony DADC, commands a 94%-95% global market share for pressing Blu-ray discs. The big reason more replicators aren’t pressing Blu-ray discs, according to Media-Tech, is concern that Sony’s cross-licensing agreements with other Blu-ray patent holders is allowing Sony DADC to avoid many royalty payments altogether, giving it a huge competitive advantage over other disc manufacturers.
And why this is important, especially for gaming, is that the PS5, the SexBox, the Bloodborne Machine, and the Xbone all use Blu-Ray discs. Meaning that Sony bowing out of the market is effectively solidifying the death of physical ownership over video games. Meaning Nintendo is your only option going forward, as of right now.

While there are a couple of articles are running cover by pointing out how this "only" effects recordable Blu-Rays: https://archive.md/ebqFE
Both keen to reference the phrasing in the Sony press releases and even sourcing this random yahoo from L.A.: https://archive.md/XTP90
The problem still remains that this is another step towards killing physical game distribution altogether. If Sony suddenly decides they'll ALSO stop making pressed discs, there's nothing anyone can do to stop them.

Ideally you'd store the disc images on a HDD (or other more reliable memory of choice) and only used the flashcard to feed them to the console, just like how the USB flash storage used by those floppy emulators is not meant to be the final resting place of the floppy disc images. Although I guess you could fit in an M.2 SSD, upload a whole lot of disc images to that, and cycle through them as needed.

>>251519
>And as soon as the industry moves to cloud-based vidya piracy will become impossible.
Cloud-based vidya will fail time and time again, the best glowniggerkikes can do is put bloated unnecessary telemetry and/or encryption schemes into games which gopniks are guaranteed to crack and/or hack around at some point.
Actual cloud-based vidya would require a complete shift towards turn-based gAAAAAAy or other genres where reaction time is a non-issue (VNs, Depression Quest, pure walking sims) because unless FTL Internet is discovered the practical realities of physical fibre infrastructure will make it inherently impossibru for most current AAAAnigger trash relying on QTEs or degraded Souls gameplay, not to mention the ongoing brain drain with pajeet contractors struggling to replicate ZSNES' Kaillera rollback netcode from 2006.
Modern hardware also satisfies the basic needs of a vast majority of game genres at a low price point and devs are moving towards cross-platform mobileshittery with a greater focus on 2D titty assets than hyper-realistic 8K 12-bit ray traced horse scrotums at a cinematic 30 fps with dynamic AI-assisted upscaling.

What could instigate a move towards cloud-based faggotry would be a Stalinist takeover of the Western hemisphere with personal possession of microelectronic entertainment devices restricted to dumb terminals, and machines capable of independent operation subject to heavy loicense restrictions and GDR-style 24/7 surveillance of their permitted owners.
Even Norks haven't done the former because operating the server farms to feed those terminals is a massive investment that only a select few entities on this gay earth can afford.

Not fucking possible with the current tech. Why do you think stadia fucking failed?

Not even that but it uses more energy than just having the thing ran locally so it's never gonna fly if it's used at scale nowadays.

>go public
>start hiring ESG/DEI/BRIDGE employees
I don't think I've ever seen a studio go from having a ton o f goodwill to cucked DEI slop so quick. Rest in piss. Literally the only game I know of from them is Stellar Blade, but the censorship and retarded damage control made me lose interest. Would have been less cucked if they had come right out and admitted they got bullied by trannys and ugly women in commiefornia into censoring their game or they weren't going to get soyny's ESGbux.

No, the moral is "don't reply to outrage bait" and "never trust a gook".

I'd wager they were DEI from the start, what with them being worst Koreans and all.

they probably had a handful of people who meant what they said and had optimism, but you're likely correct in an overall sense, this was always going to be the outcome

>Microsoft is reportedly shuttering a major diversity, equity, and inclusion team, according to an email sent by the team’s leader to a number of staff last week in which they state that companies no longer see DEI programs as "business critical."
Tweet: https://archive.ph/fnrb4
Article: https://archive.ph/rhVbG
<The email goes on to assert that DEI programs are in danger not just at Microsoft, 'but across all businesses':
<"Unofficially in my opinion, not specific to Microsoft alone, but [conservative policy plan] Project 2025 looms and true systems change work associated with 'DEI programs everywhere are no longer business critical or smart as they were in 2020'. Hence the purposeful and strategic 3-5 year shelf life of many company's inclusion commitments post the murder of George Floyd are being reevaluated," the email reads. "And the way I see it, the timing was impeccable so businesses everywhere could reevaluate the path forward should their U.S. federal contracts be at risk if the work continues on its face."
